“Almost every day when we walk, we get reactions from random people regarding his appearance and his beard,” the woman told The Dodo. “Kids usually say that he’s a ‘funny dog’ or ‘looks like a grandpa’. Older people always mention him as a stylish dog, saying something like: ‘Look at the beard he has.’ Some people call him hipster or even Chewbacca.”

As about his unique feature, Tatiana said it doesn’t requires a special care as it comes out naturally. “I never actually paid attention to his beard. I would even ask my groomer to make his beard it a little shorter because he looked too old to me,” Tatiana said.

“We don’t do any special treatment for the beard, we just wash it when Nuts takes a shower. It grows by itself and the hair is so smooth we don’t even have to comb it and it never tangled. Many people say that Nuts is very trendy as it is very popular nowadays for men to wear thick beards.”

Regarding his so-serious looking, Nuts’ mom said it doesn’t define at all his gentle personality. She says “he is kind and he doesn’t even bite. Nuts is an overly attached dog.”
